The first 5G services have started to emerge around the world, with many more expected to be launched by 2020. But these networks can only be monetized if there are devices that consumers and enterprise customers can use. So what is the state of early 5G device and chip development? 

This webinar explores the path that chips, modules and devices must traverse to make it to market and how OEMs and chip manufacturers are handling challenges in areas such as the use of mmWave spectrum and over-the-air testing.

Wireless and wired telecom providers use geocoding and location analytics for network planning and subscriber acquisition. Location data becomes even more critical during 5G deployments. For example, for fixed wireless deployment using millimeter wave (mmW) bands, which provide extremely high speeds and capacity in focused areas, operators must accurately know what the best locations are for deploying 5G small cells. Just as important is knowing what the customer locations are that will be inside the coverage area.

Tune in to this webinar to hear from Nokia and Microsoft experts about the world’s first commercial deployment of the AVA AI-as-a-service use cases library on the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform — a partnership that is breaking down the barriers traditionally associated with the public cloud by delivering unprecedented security, scalability, and agility.

As networks become increasingly complex and costly to operate, communications service providers (CSPs) around the world are looking for ways to efficiently manage their networks. Automation harnessing the power of Artificial intelligence (AI) is a clear choice. But scalability and flexibility of solutions remain as challenges.

Nokia’s groundbreaking, Nokia AVA AI as a service solves these challenges by securely utilizing public cloud platforms. Deploying an AI use case library on public cloud is security thanks to the Nokia security framework, and much faster than using private cloud. AI as a service use cases automate manual processes and augment human intelligence with AI/ML-driven insights. This means CSPs can reduce costs and energy usage, increase productivity and enhance user experience.

With the roll-out of WiFi 6 underway, how can service providers expect to benefit from this latest generation of WiFi technology? This is especially important as service providers move beyond simply delivering a fast pipe to the front door and move even further towards providing an exceptional quality of experience inside the home, and to every connected device.


Whilst WiFi 6 appears to have promise, it cannot resolve all subscriber connectivity issues and provide the delivery of increasingly personalized services. Therefore, service providers must find ways to pair WiFi 6 with sophisticated cloud control and AI-driven intelligence to make the dream of the smart home a reality.


In this Webinar, McFarland describes the WiFi 6 opportunity, explores the issues it raises, and gives practical advice about what service providers need to do to optimize the in-home experience for their subscribers.
